The Indian Tourism Ministry will be establishing 10,000 wayside facilities by 2015 along India’s vast highways network within the next 5 years to provide basic amenities such as clean food, restrooms to facilitate travellers. The tourism ministry will be closely coordinating with the Road Transport Ministry, which has been in talks with the state-run Indian Tourism Development Corp (ITDC) for setting up such facilities and restaurants on national highways
“These facilities, offering rest rooms, toilets and food outlets, will come up every 40 km on state highways and every 30 km on hill roads. Whether ITDC sets it up or oil companies set up such facilities at their gas stations, we just aim at 10,000 wayside facilities within the next five years," Tourism Secretary Sujit Banjerjee said.
